    Dude. It’s the same thing. I can print a picture of a card in the same way I can copy or find a video online. Both have intrinsic value. Both have exclusivity. Both capture a moment in time. The only difference is the medium.

    Opinionated. It's probable to download videos from ALgone but doesn't translate to ownership. In a not so distant future, you'll have homes that has frame-like LEDs, instead of paintings are these Digital Memorabilias, where one can showcase all the Official NBA Moments they might have collected. Change is inevitable, instead of NBA cards albums, it's what one NBA collection can become. Roll high on this with an open mind. This is not commentary, this is bias. You have to have both sides of the story all the time. Especially, Mr. Highroller being known to talk and talk about NBA, and to negate from tipoff: an NBPA initiative is least expected of the gentleman. E.g, you sit on a friend's couch and you saw a photo album, you'd ask about it and your friend would gladly show it to you. The future is now, you sit on a friend's couch and you'll notice the NBA highlights randomly playing on a separate screen besides the television on the living room and your friend asks about it, you gladly replied, those are my collected NBA moments.

  • AHa

    isnt having a virtual or a phiscal collectable the same? like u can watch the youtube clips instead of buying a virutal collectiable highlight, but same thing for your phiscal lebron card u also can watch it on a picture on google images. why should i own one by myself? well isnt it great to collect and call something my own? imo its basically the same, even though i think having a virtual callectable is slighlty better because u cant destroy it or damage it

  • Opamp

    For those wondering - it's essentially the expansion of digital gaming items from computer games, trying to be expanded into the real world. Same idea as the NFT and other types of digital art. You get something, on the computer, that represents an image. It doesn't have any value. But if you create a market to buy and trade them, then it gains value. My level 99 super cool pink ultra rare bazooka staff might seem stupid, but if people want to buy it, they will. The same is said with all of this lol

    usually i tend to agree with u jimmy but i think alot of this you got wrong. You basically said your lebron card is cool because you did it out of love and everybody on topshot is doing it out of money. PPL with physical cards do it out of money and top shot ppl do it out of love too. 2. you say this moment "A" is the same as that moment "B" but they say its limited so thats stupid. I agree , there should more rhyme and reason behind the moments, topshot shouldnt be able to manipulate that so much but ultimatley the fans can decide which moment is more valuable, they dont just buy off of limited they buy off of coolness and player, and a moment that corolates with the players style. Also the exact thing happens with phisical cards, the same card printed just a different color one will be worth 1.00 the other worth 1000.00 lol its crazy so not sure why you dont like when topshot does it. 3You say they cant print anymore vs anyone can make that clip, umm anyone can print that card too just as anyoone can post a clip.. anyone can take a picture of the famous artwork Monalisa but theres only 1., art, memorbilia, collections are all pretty subjective. its crazy but if you like it , chances are others will too and then its worth something

    I own a bunch of top shot but I would never be in this if I couldn’t sell these. But ya boy is a gambling addict so here we are printing money on a website selling ALgone moments

  • wocufot

    I'm not sure your use of "zero intrinsic value" is the correct term; the fact that people are buying it for investment purposes literally means that it has intrinsic value. I think what you want to say is that since there is no physical object attached to it, or the fact you can get the same "experience" for free on ALgone, it should have 0 market or monetary value; however, I would compare this closer to digital items for online games and that's a multi billion dollar industry with many players seeing "real" value in digital items... so there might be an industry here. If you want to dive into trading card history, there was also a time during the late 90s when that market crashed and people were literally holding valueless pieces of cardboard; and this industry is also controlled by the minters and the graders.... so really in someways its comparable and in some ways its not. I know where you're coming from but to put a hard NO on NFTs might be a bit shortsighted

    Yup. You have put your finger squarely on what is wrong with any market which serves as a venue for selling or buying anything without an absolute intrinsic value. Food has intrinsic value. A 1963 split window Corvette does not. It is now and was then a mediocre POS car. Any capitalist market which operates without any oversight by Us, The People will always default to an abusive trolling for suckers. This very dynamic is the engine that drives inflation - greed and valuation untethered to any real world intrinsic worth. Society has an unlimited supply of grifters and shills, and an equally bottomless well of suckers hoping to transmogrify their suckerhood into grifter status. You have earned my eternal admiration for holding your LeBron rookie card regardless of what some sad moron is willing to pay for it.

    I kinda have to say that while I agree that these are completely insane, I don't really see the difference with trading cards. The basic idea of crafting an artificially collectible "item" (physical or digital), and letting people attribute value to it is the same. The value of a trading card is not in the fine craftsmanship of the painted cardboard itself, or in owning an exclusive picture, it is in the owning right of an item arbitrarily perceived as valuable. When someone buys a super expensive trading card, it is not because the card is so great itself, it's because they want to be known as "the one who owns [such or such rare card]". You're basically buying bragging rights. It's exactly the same here, anyone can look at the same highlights on youtube (just like anyone can google the picture in their favorite Lebron card), but you buy a digital code saying "I am the one who purchased the 23th edition of this clip on this website". Is it ridiculous? Yes. Is it more ridiculous than other trading cards? I personally don't think so. On the other hand, I feel that it is different from collecting actual things, which were made for an independent purpose (stamps, bottle caps, postcards, whatever). Because those objects can have actual rarity, that was not manufactured for the sole purpose of creating a speculation bubble. I can understand someone getting excited about owning a 1972 Chinese glass coaster that is basically impossible to find (though I could hardly care less personally).

  • Brandon Char

    I think you need to do some research about blockchain. Also whats a better way of collecting a player's history than having one of their most famous plays? or a moment from a game you went to in person?

  • Andrea Bay
    Andrea Bay

    I actually thought they partnered with NBA to make sure theyre the only ones who can show the clips of the cards they sold. but this is clearly not the case. the thing is, TopShot gets some fee for every trasaction, so it's in their interest to have these things be valueable. imagine the seller and buyer both pays 1% thru topshot.. and they sell millions of cards? it's like Crypto currencies with places selling and buying them. they can be very profitable. but now it's digital art cryptos

  • Andrea Bay
    Andrea Bay

    cool video, I saw topshots website when i browsed through the other side of this "NFT" thing. Which is digital art, minted in certain serial #'s, again, there may be 100 versions of this digital artwork with a special code so you have a unique artwork. So it's like selling prints and saying we will only sell X prints. or cards edit: but you dont actualy have the artwork on ur wall when you buy it....

  • M Frusciante

    12:22 you don't understand nfts, block chain. It does have scarcity. It has the same scarcity as any physical card, actually more, because you can examine the block chain and see how many there are, and physical cards.. you have to just take their word on it. (Btw block chain is an immutable ledger, meaning once it's set it can't be fkd with, if it is everyone sees it) Your comments about they can just make more, is akin to someone saying that someone can just print more LeBron rookies. Technically they can, and do actually counterfeits are huge, but the replicas are worthless, but why? Because they are not the original, it's the same with virtual assets. Any "copy" or clip will be seen as just that a copy or clip, only those that are linked to the block chain will be authentic, and this is why they have value over a ALgone clip. To be clear: block chain technology allows virtual assets to be verifiably rare/limited. This doesn't take away any other form of the media, just like making a basketball card doesn't take away the ability to make more of them, but it makes what is on the block chain "provably scarce". Top shot aside(because it's way too speculative and investment driven mania rn), this idea is real, give it time it'll start making more sense.

  • M Frusciante
    M Frusciante

    When something is seen to have value by people, that essentially essentially gives it intrinsic value. Like it or not virtual assets are a thing, and will become more and more accepted. The thing that makes it go is the fact that digital items can be verifiably rare. Yes it's not the exact same as a physical item, there's no condition issues, and you can't hold them, but it's still a rare item. To say that "well I can just get the clip off ALgone" is like saying "well I can just get a picture of LeBron's rookie card", or "I can just get a counterfeit version of it". Both technically correct, but both not the actual provably rare item that has value. Yea today's market is mostly driven by investment speculation, but this idea will last, and in decades from now some of these digital collectibles will be worth a fortune, because the kids growing up now will as adults see them as the first version of something they see as collectible. The real reckoning will be when ar and vr go mainstream with global use and development, virtual collectibles will be as normal as any physical collectible. You have to see the virtual as now tangible. Things always unfold differently than you would hv expected, and virtual collectibles/assets is the way things are going to go, would be wise to recognize it and try to capitalize in some way. Just to note, imo top shot is not the best implementation of block chain assets, but it's leading the way. The thing about collectibles is: it is based on what the human brain perceives as valuable. Anything at all can have value as long as the brain perceives it to. Right now, people are used to only physical items having value, but that's your brain stuck in a box. When you get outside of the box you realize that digital items, with block chain are actually a better way to do it. "Verifiably rare".

    I jumped into it because I thought it was kinda cool. I have purchased 3 packs, and other moments of players that I like. Even though I've been on it a few months now, I will be honest and say that I originally joined because I was hoping to recapture some of that feeling I had collecting cards in the 80's/90's. I think its a cool concept, but its being tainted already because it just feels like its not for "Fans" at this point, it just people looking to invest and flip. Im in it to grab clips of players I like. My 9 year old Son watch my new pack opening with me tonight and he thought it was so cool...BUT I dont think its something that will keep his interest if he had his own moments like his physical Pokemon cards because he can consume as much NBA highlights as he wants on there platforms. Its crazy that the "value" and actual worth of these Top Shot moments is literally made up out of NOWHERE! It makes me feel like this is more about the "crypto" movement than something cool for Sports Fans! Now with it being all digital, the potential to do cool and unique things is incredible...for instance say you can get a special rare moment from a game you attendend if you register your ticket stub on Topshot, NOW THAT would be awesome and truly rare and unique to that specific game! Im a Sixers fan, what if i attended a game and Simmons hits a 3! And Top Shot made a special moment of that, but it was only available as a verified attendee of the game! Thats would be incredible, valuable, and rare because it would only be limited most, the number of tickets that were purchased for the game! And don't have that clip available in a regular Top shot pack! It has potential, and I think it will be even more popular moving forward once the "Early Leeches" stop making it so damn expensive because its just about flipping and money to them. Top Shot has to find a way to make this affordable for fans AND KIDS...and mimic the way physical cards were accessible to everyone, but still had special edition stuff and things that make them truly valuable. Ive only invested around $300 in it so far, and I have 22 total moments. But Im going to stay in it for a while and see how it goes. I have some original series 1 moments but mostly series 2...think those will be key to hold on to for when ever Top Shot moves out of their "Beta" phase and allows more people to sign up! I believe new customer sign ups are still on freeze. But this is really about a new product and new ways for fans to enjoy a sport...there is alot of cool things that can potentially be done since its digital media and can be verified via the blockchain, we shall see!

    Could it be so because they are dreaming of a future where no copyrighted material will be available to public eye for free? Dunno man, just look back at the past. For example, there were no companies streaming films online charging money, but now it is getting more and more impossible to watch something free online. Even ALgone is forcing you to get a membership.

It will go the way of the Bernie babies and card craze but for now just burn baby. Famous phrase in the stock market.

    You need to learn more about blockchain. Transactions which have an immutable history. So value will come from this, who has held it in the past, when it was minted, its number, etc. So, yes, they're virtual but DO have a lot of the attributes (and more) of physical cards.

    The argument I have for this is ..... anyone could have a picture of lebron James that is tangible but it doesn't make it worth anything..... you could even have a fake trading card of say Babe Ruth... but that doesn't mean you own the "real thing". People put value on things they would like to own. ... it has nothing to do with being able to view it anywhere but owning it. You could see a Picasso online anywhere so why would you buy it?

    Not only are they entirely worthless outside of investment opportunities, NFT’s have an insanely terrible effect on the environment. In order to wholely encrypt and individualize an NFT, or in this case, a highlight, they need to use an insane amount of energy. Like enough to power a small village for a day. FOR. EVERY. SINGLE.
